Owner-Chef Salvatore Coppola"s training began at an early age. As the son of the Naples born parents Salvatore spent many hours in the kitchen learning to cook and refining the same Northern Italian recipes in both of his restaurants. Before opening Coppola's on 79th Street, Salvatore trained in New York City Restaurants quickly becoming Executive Sous Chef. In 1986, using family recipes opened Trattoria Coppola, which soon after became a staple for dining on New York's Upper West Side and earned him a 5 Star Diamond Award in 1997. In 1998 Salvatore opened his doors of Coppola's East in the Gramercy Park area of Manhattan to provide a more elegant style of his Northern Italian 'Comfort Food'.On any given night you may run into a number of New York's Resident or visiting celebrities at both of Salvatore's locations. In addition to fantastic food and comfortable dining, Salvatore establishment offers professional and knowledgeable service, extensive wine list, private room and catering.

We love Coppolas it’s our favorite local Italian restaurant. The egg plant Parmesan is beyond, homemade pasta is delicious.

It was wonderful as always. It's one of the few restaurants that have kept its quality up at 100% despite the pandemic.

We were very happy. They did distance tables. I had one of the best Cosmopolitan ever. Enjoyed the Salmon dinner and my husband had a pork dish he liked. I will recommend and will like to try the East Side location. Thank you for a lovely eve.

I had a most excellent dining experience at Coppola's West. They currently have both indoor and outdoor dining tables, and I sat a comfortable spot outside. I started with the golden raisin and apple salad, which was delicious. I then had pesto rigatoni with shrimp and pine nuts - fantastic. It was a most generous portion, too. I had the apple pie for dessert, and really enjoyed it. The service was outstanding and the prices most reasonable. A dining gem on the UWS.

Coppola's West is always fantastic and one of our favorite go-to restaurants in the neighborhood. Its just good old down home Italian cooking. Very warm and cozy spot. Staff is amazing, friendly and unpretentious. Good selection of wines, menu is awesome and the Fococcia is delicious!

If you're in the area its a must.

We live in the neighborhood and either go to Coppola's or order from there several times a week. We miss the inside atmosphere and very friendly and efficient staff, but the outside set up is comfortable. The food is very good and the portion sizes are extremely generous. The prices are reasonable - especially considering the quality and quantity. We have never been disappointed!

Our dinner and service were both excellent. We went with our daughter at 6:30 on a Friday evening & there were plenty of other kids there. But there were also couples and lots of friends just catching up. It has the feel of a cozy, familiar neighborhood spot that appeals to all ages & serves really great food. We’ll definitely go back!

Lovely meal. The food was really good and the while we felt a little rushed in the beginning - I asked the waitress to slow it down and she worked her magic and the rest of the meal timing was perfect. Delicious cocktails also. We will be back.

This was my third time at Coppola’s West and it hasn’t disappointed yet. There is a warm, low key and welcoming energy in this place. My cousin and I started with the tricolor salad (we shared it). The dressing was light and perfectly matched with the delicious salad. Our entrees were grilled salmon and Branzino oreganato. Both were outstanding, prepared perfectly and paired with sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes. So good!!

Tried the restaurant using an Open Table bonus, and what a find! Food was excellent, well prepared and quite a portion - enough for a second meal at home the next day. Service attentive, decor comfortable, seating well spaced with booths on the sides, and quiet for conversation. Bonus got us there, food will bring us back!

As always, wonderful food. Minestrone soup is excellent; tri-color salad is fresh and the beets, walnuts, Gorgonzola, and various greens are all fresh, nicely presented and excellent. We almost always get an order of eggplant parmigiana and fettuccine Bolognese, and as always, they were wonderful. Our go-to Italian restaurant in NYC.

Food was for tourists who will eat anything. This is NOT fine Italian cuisine, nor is it Italian cuisine, period...Salmon with asparagus was extremely salty, dry and cold..the asparagus was raw and very thick...The meatballs have so much filler & sauce from a bottle that you can't even taste meat & they were cold...warmed up in a microwave...the clams & shrimp were cold. The clams were small shells with some breadcrumb concoction with a small tasteless, chewy clam somewhere...the shrimp were tasteless and the sauce surrounding them was very salty and cold....the eggplant appetizer was cold, drowning in commercial tomato sauce and a lump of melted cheese on top and also cold...warmed in a microwave...the only edible items we ordered was the bread, the prossecco, the coffee and the chocolate mousse cake all of which cost $70 which was pricey....although the manager did not charge for the rest of the food, he and his staff were visibly angry at my comments and we were given the cold shoulder throughout our stay. I left a 20% tip, as the service was acceptable. If you want to eat inedible, pricey food, Coppola's is the place for you and your guests.

A sleepy kind of place with a tired staff without personality.
For long periods of time. Staff member was banging on something with a loud noise directly behind the booth in which we sat. Restaurant was largely empty.seems like a place on its last legs.
Food was ordinary.
